  • Thanks for sharing Eric. Well said about this and so many other events and controversies

    Jesus said this in Matthew 5:43'You have heard that it was said, 'you shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' 44a'But I say to you, love your enemies . . .

    Proverbs 15:1: A gentle answer turns away wrath, But a harsh word stirs up anger.

  • Its important to consider that unless its consistent and sustained, even crowds of very good people can do very bad things. Events like this can happen anywhere at anytime, given the right chemistry of environment, circumstances and instigators

Hating Haters - Singapore Riot observations

  1. OBSERVATIONS AFTER THE SINGAPORE RIOT OF 2013 HATING THE HATERS!!!!!!! http://www.flickr.com/photos/neilsingapore/
  2. I LIVE IN SINGAPORE
  3. LAST NIGHT THERE WAS A RIOT
  4. IN LITTLE INDIA
  5. I WON’T GO INTO SPECIFICS ‘CAUSE THOSE CAN BE GOOGLED
  6. I WANT TO TALK ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED AFTER
  7. AS YOU CAN IMAGINE
  8. IMMEDIATELY SOCIAL MEDIA WAS ABLAZE WITH NEWS
  9. AND ALMOST AS QUICKLY, NEWS BECAME OPINIONEDITORIAL
  10. AND A TSUNAMI OF UGLY IDEAS CAME OUT
  11. SOME OF IT WAS RACIST
  12. SOME OF IT WAS CLASSIST
  13. SOME OF IT WAS SEXIST
  14. AND RIGHT ON THE HEELS OF THE HATERS, CAME THE HATER HATERS
  15. THEY CALLED THE HATERS DISGUSTING
  16. THEY CALLED THE HATERS IDIOTS
  17. THEY CALLED THE HATERS PAROCHIAL XENOPHOBES
  18. WELL, I BET YOU CAN IMAGINE HOW THE HATERS REACTED
  19. DO YOU THINK ANYONE CALLED A DISGUSTING XENOPHOBE SAID…
  20. OH DEAR.
  21. I GUESS THEY ARE RIGHT
  22. I‘D BETTER CHANGE MY ATTITUDE
  23. NO
  24. I TOO DOUBT THAT ANY OF THEM SAID THAT
  25. ANYWAY, IT GOT ME THINKING
  26. AND BEING A MANAGEMENT CONSULTANT
  27. IT GOT ME THINKING ABOUT COST-BENEFIT ANALYSIS
  28. ABOUT THE COST-BENEFIT OF BEING A HATER HATER
  29. AND IN THE END
  30. HATING HATERS SEEMS A REALLY INEFFICIENT AND INEFFECTIVE STRATEGY
  31. EVEN IF IT FEELS GOOD TO BE A HATER HATER IN THE MOMENT
  32. AND HERE’S WHY
  33. HOW TO DEAL WITH A HATER HATE THEM BACK BITE YOUR LIP AND SHOW COMPASSION & GUIDANCE BEST They ignore you & Things get better CASE keep hating WORST Things escalate & They ignore you & CASE more people keep hating pulled into the hating vicious circle
  34. ANYWAY, THE REAL REASON THAT BEING A HATER HATER IS NOT SO GOOD
  35. IS THAT THE PEOPLE IN LITTLE INDIA
  36. TURNING OVER ALL THE CARS AND BREAKING THINGS
  37. INCLUDING OTHER PEOPLE
  38. WERE FORGOTTEN
  39. WE’VE BEEN SO DISTRACTED BY ALL THE HATING
  40. THAT WE FORGOT ALL THE PEOPLE IN THE STREETS
  41. WITH REAL RAGE
  42. SCARY RAGE
  43. NOT ILL-CONCEIVED BELIEFS
  44. BUT REAL, METAL-PIPEWIELDING RAGE
  45. AND THAT RAGE, TO BE FAIR
  46. WAS BASED IN SOME ILLEGITIMATE REASONS
  47. BUT IT WAS ALSO BASED ON SOME LEGITIMATE ONES AS WELL
  48. AND SO, WITH ALL THE EFFORT SPENT ON HATING AND HATING HATERS
  49. WE’RE WASTING SO MUCH ENERGY NOT CHANGING WHAT MATTERS
  50. ANYWAY, HAPPY HOLIDAYS FROM SINGAPORE!
